Abstract:

On a PMR Atlas test, the launch site and up to 50 km altitude were illuminated by second-hop energy radiated from the Madre radar. Weak missile plus exhaust boundary echoes were obtained while the missile was at low altitudes. Analysis of the returns shows the character to be typical of exhaust boundary reflections with promise of extractable doppler information.
